Hey BrianE- I too live in St. Louis! Had KSHE on when I went to lunch and to my surprise Playin then Casey Jones. Growing up in rural NH, shows, good or bad, were few and literally far between. And while I was at 5/7/77 Boston Dead for my first show, I was uninitiated and didn't really know what I was seeing. The microdot blurred the rest. However, Fleetwood Mac/Eagles/Boz Scaggs that summer at Foxboro was like nothing I had ever seen before. Another fave was the Allman Bros/Edgar Winter Band in Portland Me. Zappa at the American Theater in St. Louis (I hope you got to see a show there-used to be an Orpheum) was mind numbing- especially when he broke into Whipping Post. Nice thread. So, what part of the area do you live? Perhaps beers, or better yet Dark Star in January?

OK, dont laugh at me, but growing up in the 80's I loved the metal bands at the time. Iron Maiden, Priest, Metallica, Ozzy, Scorpions. Saw them all. I guess my other personality saw bands like Tull (didn't he win a grammy for best metal band?), Floyd and JGB. Living by the Brendan Byrne arena and MSG was always great. I found a scalper outside the Garden who sold us 3 Floyd tickets for $15. He had so many tickets he was desparate!

No laughing here. I was a metal head in my Day. Still love Black Sabbath with Ozzy.

Saw Iron Maiden three times.

We're way over here in Centralia, IL. Don't get into the Gateway City too much these days, but when we do, maybe we'll hook up. Money's really tight right now, so we don't have any plans to get over there in the near future. Would love to see Seger at Scottrade Center, because I've got a soft spot in my heart for him, but it ain't gonna happen. Nor will Red Hot Chili Peppers. Or Los Lonely Boys. Or Gregg and Devon Allman. Speaking of Devon, though, it's not unheard of for us to make it to Schwagstock. Saw Devon there. I worked up a sweat just listening to that rockin' young man.

The most amazing non dead shows for me were Zappa at the Empire Pool Wembley in 73 and 88 also honourable mention to Robert Hunter at the Venue London 1979.We spent journey there discussing who would back him. Then he appeared with just his acoustic and blew everyone away.After the first show they had to announce that all the crowd could stay and the second show ticket holders would have to squeeze in !

Jody-
I don't know if you made that offer to me, but if so, like I said, making the 130-odd mile round trip at any point in the near future looks pretty unlikely. Many thanks, though. That Zappa Plays Zappa show does sound pretty cool. I saw Frank in Carbondale back in about '82 or so. It was just as fun as one might expect, even more so. Never saw the Mule, but did see Warren when he was part of "The Dead." And I saw that other Warren (Zevon) open for The Grateful Dead in Boulder for one of their 15th anniversary shows. And one night, also in Carbondale, I was walking home from actually doing some studying at Morris Library when I heard some sounds wafting out of Shryock Auditorium as I was strolling by. "Hey, Zevon's playing in their tonight. Hmmmm, I wonder . . . " So, I just walked in that small venue, saw no one inside the front door, and just sauntered upstairs without a ticket to catch the last half-dozen or so songs of his show. Other shows I saw at that place, which was actually designed to be a classical recital hall so it's a very cool venue to see a concert, were King Crimson, Todd Rundgren solo, The Psychedelic Furs (they kinda sucked), and REM on their first full-scale tour (didn't like 'em all that much, either. Years later, though, saw them at the Riverport/UMB Bank Pavilion/soon-to-be another Verizon Barn outside St. Louis, and they were absolutely wonderful.)

Completely understood. If you're ever on this side to begin with and only have the return trip home, maybe a beverage would be in order.

If there was a group or person I could see other than the dead (and all of jerrys side projects) it would be Zappa and the mothers.. Whoever said they saw zappa..*raises fist to the sky in anger!*

Purple gel-
Marley? Tosh? The Clash? The Wall? Zeppelin in Rome? English Beat? Zappa/Beefheart? Talking Heads at CBGB's? U2 at Red Rocks? Little Feat in '77? DAVID LINDLEY AND EL RAYO-FUCKING-X? You're killing me.

Hey, I did see Santana in '78. I don't think I ever fully recovered from that one. Saw them again on the Supernatural tour. Totally different kind of show. Everlast, who did Turn Your Lights On on that album opened and Carlos joined him on stage for it. That was nice.

The first show I ever went to was 7/30 Irvine Meadows (screw the whole "verizon wireless amphitheatre" BS) and I saw.......


CSNY!!!!!

I loved it. Was in tears when they played wooden ships. It was cool.. they played all the old stuff.. including deja vu (!). Crosby's voice was off the hook, and neil was going off on guitar, and yeah. I loved it. I wish I could have gone to a dead show =/

WOAH! I remember the Rainbow in Denver! Saw a few shows there but I'd be embarassed to say what they were. Sad, did you hear what it turned into? A Walgreens
